It is an Ebay listing, which I ironically found it on this web site. When I am longed I can not view pictures. Thus I search when not logged in to view pictures. On thread on champagne DIY Co2 not longed in there was a link to it. Just go to ebay and search for DIY CO2 system Kit. Then item from a few sellers should be viewable.

I am going to try the traditional DIY Co2 first before buying it.

It says you must prepare -
2x 2 Litre of Coka Cola plastic bottle
1x 200g of Citric acid or 200ml of vinegar
1x 200g of baking soda
With listing lowest price the 1st has detailed instructions. The 2nd 1 has a video showing the preparation of the mixture.

The smell of vinegar would probably not be good. Thus another reason to try champagne yeast 1st. It has a sweeter smell to it. I have a sensitive nose.
